In general, introverts are not afraid of interacting with others; they simply prefer to spend time alone.
By investing in the opposite reaction to fear, you begin to build a habit of facing fears, accepting your uncomfortable emotions and openness to the possibility that social situations aren’t as life-threatening as your fears indicated.
Live in a way that people can call you whatever they want except for lazy or disinterested.

Who be I? I am your humble narrator, the voicemail greeting, the conduit between you and my master
Constantly experience life as if you’re searching for a moment to photograph.
Maybe she’s afraid you don’t actually mean what you’re saying. She’s heard tender words that turned out to be lies. She’s been promised futures that were shattered the next day.
You are an uncharted constellation, the kind that astronomers spend years searching for, but never find.
We came as close to dating as two people could get. You were basically my boyfriend. You just didn’t want to call me your girlfriend.
My eating disorder is unrelenting, terrible, and LOUD. It’s so loud that even if you want to hear truth and even if you want to break free, you cannot hear anything anyone is trying to tell you because you are drowning in the shrieks of its anger.
Freshly cleaned sheets. Because getting in your bed after you wash your sheets is like, THE best thing ever.
I wonder if you think of me when you’re flipping through channels and one of the shows we watched together comes on.
You feel like your life is shattering around you, splintering in the wake of chaos. You feel like you are dancing on broken glass, shards jutting into the tender soles of your feet.
Don’t hurt yourself trying to hurt me. Don’t hurt us only to discover that you can’t live with the pain.
Virgo: The timing just wasn’t right. That sounds like a lame excuse, but it’s actually the truth in this case.
We’re digital nomads, social media mavens, the masters of coding and content creation. We’re changing the way the world views “work.”

ou aren’t supposed to see your friend in a casket.
Being an aunt makes everything new again.
Did your name make the cut?
Despite this particular couple’s differences, the future’s uncertainty, and their experience with struggle, that was the most important thing to them; the love. Truthfully, that should be the most important thing to all couples. When the sun begins to shyly peak over the horizon in the timid hours of the morning, what, or rather who, gets you out of bed? If that’s not worth fighting for, then I don’t know what is.
Focus on one goal at a time. Not three, six, or twelve.
I sit here with the taste of you
Still on my lips
The smell of you
Still fresh in my nostrils
Cancer: You suck at being single because you hang out with the same people all of the time
Is there some plan
That is beyond me
Or is this just a reminder
To not take things for granted?
“Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”
Your whisper is like a ghost in my mind
The subtle inflection haunting my brain
Calling to me in the night
Each and every word dragging me back
To the place I’m trying to escape
She was my soulmate, the Thelma to my Louise. During the height of our friendship, we made a promise that if we never found love, we’d be there for each other, no matter what.
Know that love is the only thing real in this world. Rest is just an illusion. Don’t take such a thing for granted, because love is the foundation for the creation of this universe. It’s all those little things in them which the universe has taken time on, and delicately carved out in detail, appreciate them every time you notice them.
Hovering my soul inside me to let another explore,
And visit the corners of this temple I once bore,
Should I tear away my flesh or fill it with unknown colours,
The ones who visit this temple keep silent offerings, those tamed lovers.
$300,000 may not be much for a record-smashing superhero film, but it’s not unusual.
The truth is she didn’t just lose you she lost herself trying to keep you.
There is no set definition for love. No foolproof means of identifying or labeling it, no sure way to know whether what you’re feeling is pounding in your partner’s heart. But it’s beautiful, nonetheless.
Going for your big dreams allow you to learn from failure and success. What does it mean to fail and what can one do about it? Easy, you learn from it and you take it as a challenge to improve and do better next time. You therefore grow in character and in the skills you possess.
You will not always understand. There will be times when I am going through something that you won’t even be able to fully comprehend, because my chronic illness is something you will (hopefully) never have to experience firsthand. You will feel frustrated when I retreat into myself.
To truly and absolutely move on means that we are entirely sure about what we want for ourselves with or without somebody to make us feel whole again.
You start observing yourself observing them, their little scars or birthmarks exposed in peculiar spaces, the crinkles around their eyes and their mouths that form when they smile and their laughs that impersonates the explosion of galaxies. And these little things memorize themselves in your mind.
What’s the first gif that comes up when you search your name?
So when we say the timing was bad, what we are really saying is “I didn’t get what I wanted.”
“There are a lot of things I want to do in my life, and they don’t require a partner.”
Your future is not tied to anyone who doesn’t think you’re great or someone who is not afraid of losing you. Your future is not tied to people who belittle you or make you feel small, it’s not tied to people who forget you.
Anorexia is not something that girls do to try and look skinny like the models in those glossy fashion magazines.
He will remember that he was the one who ended it. That he was the one who tore it all apart. That he was the one who cared less. Who loved less. Who thought that that he needed to spread his wings some more. And he will remember the look on your face when he said, ‘it’s over’.
He had to let her go because he knew he couldn’t take care of her the way she wanted him to, by faking his way through it and making her cry eventually. He knows her worth too and knows that she deserves better.
Significant others come and go but your best friend will forever be by your side.
